It is really sad how stupid and pathetic you are! A White History Month????? Every Month is white history month!- I live in the south not far from Laurens and having stores like this in a community is a total insult and makes white people from the south look absolutely ignorant. Southern pride is one thing I get that. But to have a store that promotes the KKK is absolutely absurd and outrageous. There are actual Applications for the KKK in there. Ignorant selfish judgemental evil white people enjoy places like this, because you know what they have no real lives of they're own and no self respect so they find it FUNNY to put others down, not just black people ALL PEOPLE that are not white. I live in Greenville SC. Not far from Laurens at all. These people are sick. The sad thing is that the young men of this community are being brought up to believe that this is acceptable and even required. It is tought to them by their racist ass fathers who most likely little to no education and are just hateful because they are unhappy with they're mediocre lives. I was born is SC and have been in Greenville my whole life. There are things that I love about GREENVILLE. I have also lived through a lot of judgement and persecution from people in SC Black and White. For being in an interracial relationship. SC IS NOT THE PLACE TO MOVE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH IN YOUR FACE RACISM AND PREJUDICE!!! The peolpe down here are stuck in a time that is not a REALITY anymore. There is no way in hell that I would raise my children ANYWHERE in SC because of the things they would have to go through for being bi-racial. the only thing that I can do is hope that these hateful people will open they're eyes and realize that its 2008, and to find something mor productive to do with their live besides judge and hate. We are moving up North as soon as possible.
so sweaty what do you think about all black schools,that is not right neither,but they have it and you don't hear white people saying not a thing about it ,so we want a all white store , come on now, this is a free country. my best friend is black i love hanging out w/ black people but we are different and that is the fax of life. what is ignorant is people whop don"t want to admit that,me and my g/f laugh a lot because we are different.but they promote all black school we promote a all red neck name we have had for a long time. like my black g/f/ said every since we white people voted a black man in black people are trying like hell to wine and cry to get something free..........

Problem with Laurens County you can do anything you to. You can open any kind of buisness who cares, all you got to do is pay your little fee, run it by the planning committee who absolutely don't have a clue of what's going on or whats good for the county? Most of the counties elected officials take up a seat and turn their head. There's not one thing you can do about it but move.Besides who shops in laurens anyway most go to Greenwood or Simpsonville. Unless you shop at Walmart or the Redneck shop what ya gona wear? If you work in laurens you are on the bottom end of the pay scale so if you seek improvement again you better move.I think the Redneck shop suits the majority of the citizens in Laurens.To me the people get exactly what they ask for by moving to laurens.
And who are you to talk about Laurens? Apparently wherever you are from isn't much better, because you seem extremely vacuous. Look up the word if you don't know what it means, as I'm sure you don't. Of course there isn't much to do in Laurens. It's a small town. That's why people drive to the mall to get their clothes, or elsewhere where there are better options than in the small town of Laurens. And this is America, in case you didn't know that. John can have his Redneck Shop if he so desires.:)

What does the Red Neck shop sell anyway? Just curious.. I do wish you red necks would stop the ignorant talk. You all had a chance to learn proper english. If you didn't get it, it's your fault.
The Redneck Shop has an abundance of interesting items. You should visit it sometime. John won't bite you, although he was at one point the Grand Dragon. If an African-American comes into his store, it isn't like he chases them out, or beats the hell out of them, or anything of that sort. He doesn't discriminate. Out loud, anyways. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. And calling rednecks rednecks isn't derogatory. Most of them take it as a compliment. So don't try to make it that way. And yes, I am a redneck. But you wouldn't think so, because I suppose I don't exactly fit the stereotype. Not all of us are ignorant, as you so put it.:)
